that the regime in the ukraine, in kiev was going to force -- was going to rebuff europe and instead cast its lot with russia. that's what produced this dynamic. we're all playing catchup, the people -- the real actors here, the people who have moved the story are the people of ukraine. and the people of ukraine particularly young people, particularly people in the west seem to say we want a future that is outside of the shadow of russian domination. that has produced a kind of complicated set of facts on the ground. it's a complicated situation, but surely the way to respond to that is not to send in thuggish paramilitary troops who do not have markings, because you don't have the courage to admit that you have effectively invaded cry mere, so you're doing it in this sur repetitious way. the best way to have dealt with this i think would have been to have negotiations, diplomacy, see what the people want, and if they want a special autonomous status, even if they wanted secession, maybe that's possible. but surely i cannot imagine that steve or anyone else would argue this is a good principle of

snubbed by the oscars. >> first the standoff in ukraine's crimia, between moss scpo kiev appears to be escalating. russian military helicopters appear to be seep in the skies. ukraine's interim prime minister says the government will not bow to what he calls russian provocation. the russian pro-russian leader took control of the military and the police in sevastapol. report hoda abdel-hamid of 13 russian aircraft carrying unidentified troops. is it clear they are russian soldiers? >> well, according to the authorities in kiev they are russian authorities, even though russia denied the reports. when we asked the soldiers (played around the parliament building, "who are you?" the answer we get is no comment. the one thing we can say is it looks like the man who appeared in front of the airport here yesterday. they appear to have the same gear and weapons. just in front of them is a role of men who have an orange and back insignia showing their allegiance to russia. they say they are self-defense unit and are doing the same as what was happening in maydan. they say they are here to
a combat ready ukraine? >> that's the fear if kiev, and the latest from here is that the head of the state security and defense counsel has just emerged from a closed-door session of parliament to give a press conference in which he announced all reservists in ukraine are being called up. they are being mobilized and told to gather. he then said that the regular forces were on the highest level of combat alert, and he said that they had agreed to protect key installations. among these are nuclear plants, nuclear energy plants, which now will have increased security as a result of events down in the south in crimea. of course, there's also been incidents in the east of the country where there is equally a pro russian sympathy movement which has been attacking pro european so they are the key points from the press conference, from the head of security here in kiev. interestingly in his list, number two, is simply marked secret. >> very briefly, you mentioned unrest. i wondered if there were any obvious signs that unrest against the new interim government in kiev is spreading from the crimea
. and also a warning not to intervene in ukraine and the former president is hiding in russia. we will have more on today's developments in kiev. but first, lawrence lee is in crimea. >> there are attempts to turn the capital into a source of kiev but the reverse. the parliament building in the hands of heavily armed men protecting it from what they see as undemocratic forces. their support is not so many but eager to tell you they would like nothing more than russian tanks on the streets to protect them. >> american army was supported in different countries. today we support russian army because everyone of us has relatives in russia. >> the police line staffed by just a handful of uncertain looking men didn't look very impressive. the small group proves just how unimpressive it was. the point being that they wanted to tell the armed group in charge of parliament that they were with them and that they were in control. >> so it is pretty obvious who is in charge here. the police line simply melted away as these people obviously said they wanted to hold the protest right in front of the buil
warning shots and stood face to face with ukraine soldiers. they were demanding the russians vacate the area. the tense standoff occurred just before secretary of state john kerry arrived in kiev to show support for ukraine's government. >> the united states reaffirms our commit to ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity. according to international law. we condemn the russian federation's act of aggression. >> reporter: russia is under pressure to pull thousands of troops from southern ukraine, a region with many ethnic russians and considerable strategic advantages for russia's military. in his first extended comments since russian troops seized crimea, president vladimir putin called the recent uprising an unconstitutional ciewp and said moscow -- coup and said moscow reserves the right to protect ukraine [ inaudible ] it will offer advisories to help with new elections. president obama has also been huddling with his staff about economic sanctions against russia that might convince putin to change course. world financial markets and russia's currency rebounded tuesday aft
. >> secretary of state john kerry will be on the ground here in ukraine in kiev later on today. expected to depart shortly from andrews air force base. we'll bring you that departure as it happens, i want to go to jim acosta at the white house. what is the latest in terms of diplomatic efforts on the u.s. front? >> president obama met with his national security advisers earlier this evening, they're not really looking at military options, at least according to what the white house is saying. they're focused on what can be done economically and diplomatically, you heard this talk over the weekend that u.s. and allies won't go to the g-8 summit this summer in russia. the u.s. is cancelling all military engagements that it has with the russians, that's a new step that took place this evening. you mentioned that secretary of state john kerry is heading over to kiev to talk about financial assistance that he is brings promises of from the united states and hopefully according to this white house from european allies, but the president believes that the world is on his side, not vladimir putin
guarantee for the ukraine. kerry also warned against intervention by russia. kiev inlcote is in independence square last night. he filed this report. >> welcome to kiev's independence square, a place that nearly a week after the ousting of former president yanukovych remains the center of power in this country. that is something that is very much on display today in independence square. on the stage, the politicians have come to present their candidates for the country's new government. to receive the people's blessing. distrust of politicians in this country runs very deep even when it comes to those politicians that were in the opposition to yanukovych that stood with the protesters here just a week ago. when you look around independence square, you quickly realize that the real power in kiev today is here with the people on the square. a constituency of maybe tens of thousands in a country of 45 million. who is calling the shots? right here, as far as i can tell, it looks like it is going to stay that way for some time. ryan chilcote, bloomberg. from have live pictures the ukrainian parli
chilcote, bloomberg, kiev. >> ryan is on the phone from kiev. ukraine is seeking international monitoring of events in crimea. lawmakers have approved a resolution to seek international monitoring as well. how likely is it that what is happening in crimea really does spin out of control? is a good question. all we can set this point is what is actually happening. this all started this morning when a second group of gunmen, or armed man if you will, appeared at the airport in a city in crimea. already another group of armed men inside the regional legislature there. areas unclear who these men . subsequently, we have heard from the country's president saying that there are russian troops moving around ukraine without coordination, without coordinating with the ukraine. as you say, asking for international assistance in monitoring events in crimea. there is speculation, and i underline the word speculation, that these troops are somehow related, or these armed men are somehow related to russia. as least as far -- at least as far as evidence, these are not russian troops. just as in the case
of what happened in kiev and in ukraine in general, there can only be one assessment. this was an anticonstitutional takeover and armed seizure of power. that was vladimir putin's view of what happened in kiev. as yanukovych slaughtered, i believe, 82 innocent civilians as well as wounding hundreds, and then he goes on to say, i would like to stress that under that agreement mr. yanukovych actually handed over power. obviously, yanukovych did not hand over power. he was driven from power by the good people who were tired of his corruption, were sick of his nepotism and his crony capitalism. anybody who believes anything good about mr. yanukovych should see the pictures of the home he had and the dacha that he was building that cost hundreds of millions of dollars. truly a man of the people. the parliament of president putin went on to say the current acting president -- talking about the acting president of ukraine -- is definitely not legitimate. there is only one legitimate president from a legal standpoint. yanukovych is the only undoubtedly legitimate president. a

to be a part of independent ukraine. it considers what is happening in kiev a coup and believes that the people in kiev who are running the government are not legitimate. as you heard in jen's piece, some are saying that we shouldn't have russian soldiers, some are welcoming the russian soldiers, 60 or 70% of crimea is very much russian, there are 20 or 30% who look west. minorities. they do demand some kind of application from the government in kiev, and that's who they are looking for, for example now, but frankly the military is not giving it to them, the local government and nobody from the national government demonstrated an ability or willingness to defend the people looking to the west or kiev. now all power, it seems, in crimea switching to the east. >> they seem to be on their own. nick schifrin live for us. thank you. >> ukraine is preparing itself for a russian offensive. hundreds of men of all ages have gone to recruiting centres to volunteering their services. row is in kiev and spoke to some of them. >> ukrainians are preparing themselves for war. in kiev were there has already be
. is this the legitimate government of ukraine that's in kiev? if show, we should be saying it at every opportunity. and what made it legitimate and why is mr. yanukovych not legitimate? because that's putin's argument. and then, finally, i think you've got to really get down and look at the facts on the ground. and so i would like to see an assessment mission go in from the organization from security and cooperation in europe or maybe from nato itself. just some people who can go in and say, here's a report that the russians are on this border. are they there? what can you see behind it? because as this crisis escalates, which it might, the most important commodity is going to be on the ground, eyes on target, information. you can't get it necessarily from nsa, as good as nsa and as good as the satellite coverage is, you have to have people who can talk to each other on the ground. >> and president saakashvili just said the satellites were point there had, but it's not enough to get all the information you need. what about this point that he raises. what about the legitimate government? a lot of p
